How *exactly* does Smart Navigation work?

How *EXACTLY* does Smart Navigation work? (I would really really really like
for this Smart Navigation to work in Mozilla.)

The inner workings and the code is what I am looking for.

Does it use JavaScript? If so, is there any code that someone can point to.

And can the ASP.NET 2.0 team get this work in Mozilla....sort of targeting
multiple browser like they do with other stuff already....It would be a
really big boost to them, Microsoft not being viewed as ANTI-TRUST and
anti-competitive.

Thanks.

I think there is a javascript in the Framework directory under asp.net
client files.

You might find what you're looking for in the
/aspnet_client/system_web/1_1_4322/SmartNav.js file.

Hope this helps,

JavaScript (SmartNav.js). It is downloaded to the client. Look at the source
when you are using SmartNav and you will see it in there.

The problem with multiple-browsers here is IE has smart nav (remembering
control hit) built in (albeit with help), NetScape does not. MS would have
to embed anchors for each control to accomplish the same in Mozilla.
Considering the small browser percent in NetScape, this is a case of
diminishing returns.

I looked at the SmartNav.js file. However, Mozilla seems like a pretty good
browser.

If you say IE has Smart Nav built in, why is that a SmartNav.js file in the
first place?

Built-in, but not psychic. The concept is like this:

MS will "remember" where you scrolled down to (ie, remembers the last
control worked on). For NetScape, you need to purposefully put anchor tags
in. The Smart Navigation has to be activated on the client, thus the reason
for having the JavaScript.

It has nothing to do with NetScape being a bad browser, just that NetScape
does not have certain items built in that simplify things.

I have been working on a web app that uses IFrames for our edit screens. A main window contains static information, while an IFrame contains the editable page. I use javascript from the outer page to cause the inner page to post back, but when I turn on smart navigation, it locks up IE. I tracked it down to the actual .submit() call in javascript, then its locked up. I set a couple of hidden form elements that I use for tracking, then...

Greetings to all... I have a simple asp.net app. It consists of three aspx pages. I have enabled smart navigation on the pages.

I have even copied aspnet_client folder to the root of the website and it still does not work. I am still working in 1.0 version.

I am having a problem of SmartNavigation, wher eit works fine on the test server, but not on the server that I load it up to. I tried placing "page.smartnavigation=false" right before I redirect, but now smart navigation doesn't even "turn on". So I was wondering if there were any examples of other methods out there to recieve the same effect of smart navigation. Can anyone possibly provide sample source code in VB.NET? THank Devin

Recently a new windows update for internet explorer was released which seems to have broken stylesheets with smart navigation. The first request for the page works fine, but any subsequent postbacks when smart navigation is applied results in internet explorer not applying the style sheet. Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution as at the moment I've had to disable smart navigation on the page.
